to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
to be worse off than me, why is president obama four years into his term, why is he out front? >> because people haven't been convinced that mitt romney is any better. in fact, when we take the uncommitted voters we were talking about, most of them say, the economy is not going to get better if barack obama is reelected only 14% thinks there will be an improvement in the economy if the president is reelected. only 28% think that things get better if mitt romney, he has not closed the sale things would be any different if he was president. stuart: i think your tracking poll is one of the most accurate out there. >> always great to be with you, stuart. stuart: 9:50 eastern, here is the gold report. 1,790 po 1,790.70. close to 1800 bucks. off $16. dow up, oil up, gold up. we're less than 15 minutes away from the latest read on the economy and that would be, and that comes before friday, and the big jobs report. we're going to cover all of it for you, 0 i believe, and i will give you my take on the latest bubble. it's not what you think. coming up next though, a fortune, and misfortune, and r
determine the outcome here. barack obama's victory here in north carolina four years ago was the first by a democrat since 1976. it was helped in large part by a huge turnout by african-americans, a whooping 72%, well above the national average. but his win here was his slimmest margin in the country. a mere 14,000 votes. it looks like he'll have to do as well or better among blacks and other voters in this deeply divided state. the task is made harder by the hit north carolina took in the recession. unemployment was 9.7%, fifth highest in the country. the rate for african-americans is nearly double. and the state has seen enormous change. demographically with the reverse migration of blacks returning and an influx of hispanics and other new residents. and economically. u.n.c. professor and long time political reporter says north carolina is moving in two directions at once >> the up escalator in this state is the economic diversification into higher-wage, higher-skill, research and development, biotechnology. the down escalator is the collapse of the traditional industries of textiles
rights and election year fraud is playing out around the country. >> ifill: then, we have two takes on the battle for north carolina. jeffrey brown reports on the tightening presidential contest. >> brown: barack obama won this state in 2008 by the slimmest of margins with help from a large african-american turnout. four years later in a down economy it looks like his challenge will be even greater. >> woodruff: and we talk with national public radio's greg allen. he focuses on the outreach to hispanics in the tar heel state. >> ifill: then margaret warner updates the investigation into the assault on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> woodruff: we look at new findings showing australia's great barrier reef has lost half its coral in the last 27 years. >> ifill: and we close with snapshots of three of this year's macarthur genius award winners, each with a unique view of war. >> people tend to look at the military, they tend to look at war and they tend to look at conflict as something very black and white. it's not like that at all. >> ifill: that's all ahead on tonight's newshour. ma
cannot afford four more years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. his plan and his approach says fundamentally that government knows better than you how to live your life, how to pick winners and losers, how to choose companies that can be successful and products that have a future, the government, that a group of bureaucrats of real smart people, working hard, they're good people who work in washington, but he has this view that somehow they know better than free people. so he's going to put them in the most important -- or one of the most important relationships that you have, that's the relationship between you and your doctor. he's going to put government between there if he has his way. he wants a government that is more and more expensive and intrusive. do you know how much money he spent in one year, putting money into companies that he thought had a bright future, green companies. he spent $90 billion, $90 billion. and sent it into companies that in many cases that were owned by campaign contributors of his. >> you hear the boos in the crow
during his first year in office. obama called a lack of immigration reform the biggest failure of his presidency, but attempted to shift blame for the failure to republicans. >> when we talk about immigration reform in the first year, that is before the economy was on the verge of collapse. lehman brothers had collapsed, the stock market was collapsing. and so my first priority was making sure we prevented us from going into a great depression. i think everybody remembers where we were four years ago. i am happy to take responsibility for being nine eve. i did not expect republicans to approve this is supported comprehensive immigration reform, my opponent in 2008 who had been a champion of it and attended these meetings, suddenly would walk away. >> president obama's comments come as his administration faces scrutiny for deporting and detaining a record number of undocumented people, nearly 400,000 immigrants were deported during the last fiscal year. the republican presidential nominee mitt romney also fielded questions about immigration during a wednesday appearance on univision. r
years in to president obama's term we should be in recovery that is full speed ahead. instead we have in a stall speed growth recession. we will pursue the issue regarding the sthookt had a lousy week but a good quarter. we will get advice on that. >>> later on in the show, schools can't teach kids to speak english properly. why is one governor asking schools to teach chinese mandarin? very interesting. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 operating expenses tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 in their respective tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 lipper categories. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 lower than spdr tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and even lower than vanguard. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 that means with schwab, tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 your portfolio has tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 a better chance to grow. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 and you ca
in the case of egypt, but the united states has tried to give it. last year, president obama came to the united nations and was really ou -- touting these liberalizing movements but in the last years with the recent riots and anti-americanism we found we open a pandora's box. in some cases, things are going to go down the direction that, if not secular, pluralist -- and in other cases things may get quite dicey and we may be confronted with a democratically elected governments even that are not necessarily on the same page as we are into the fundamental values and interests. host: "the washington post" editorial notes there has been pro-american push back in libya and egypt. a revealing reaction, they say, against attacks on u.s. missions. people with pro-america signs pushed their way into an encampment -- guest: this is a very hopeful development and also suggest what you see on a particular day on the so-called arab street is not necessarily a reflection of the more silent majority or in some cases less silent. people coming out afterwards and decrying the violence. in libya cl
last four years. i believe fact checking was created just for president obama. and i hope he does decide to spend his time correcting him because, quite honestly, most people know what an incumbent president has or has not done and what people want from a challenger is what are you going to do that will be better? >> well, alicia, is the strategy here that they want to have romney act as though the president lies so much and is full of falsehoods that if he does well in the debates, you really can't trust what he is saying, therefore, he's not doing well and to give romney a way of aggressively going after the president so he doesn't have to deal with specific policy things that can be taken apart by the president? >> yes and yes. he is dealing with the joe wilson school of debate, something we've seen from romney before. he tries to newt traize his own weaknesses by turning them against president obama. how much time it gives the obama campaign to prepare and to ji jut sue it. now obama can go into that debate ready to talk about the many lies and misspeaks of the romney campaign
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package,
, americans say obama is better than romney for the next four years. let's delve in and show you the numbers. first on the economy, 55% of americans saying they're worse off than four years ago, 27% better, 17% say the same. come on over to this side, 43% say obama's better for the economy compared to 34% for romney. we're going to get into some of the reasons why that may be true, a big reversal from when we asked about the economy in the last survey. this is a survey of all adults where it's a financial and economic survey. it's not a political survey so to speak so the results may not be comparable. on jobs, 23%. 29% say worse. obama 42% better on jobs, romney 36%. let's rotate the thing, it rotates that way, health care, obama's signature issue, 23% say better, 44% say worse, 28% the same. you can use better and the sames not worse. health care, obama 45, romney 32. perhaps there's inroads romney could make on the meter which is about in the 10% to 15% range. the deficit, the one issue of the eight categories where romney wins it but look at the huge margin. 73% of the public says it's w
people about our respective views. >> four more years. >> reporter: mr. obama spent a couple of hours practicing yesterday, as well. and has three days set aside for more practice. it's nicknamed debate camp. and near the end of camp, like now, it's a full-on mock debate. following the time rules, podiums the exact distance apart, and fill-ins for the opposition. preparing joe biden. >> it's only tense when they give you the completely wrong answer. the goal is to make them feel that they're as real as possible. >> reporter: she believes romney has the harder chore. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. >> reporter: being aggressive against the president, drawing distinctions between the president, trying not to be nasty. >> i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> reporter: and the president who can become impatient, is probably being pushed in practice, as well. >> part of having a tough opponent in your mock is that you get that anger out in the mock. so that the president is relatively calm and collected. >> reporter: there are re
, that was president obama, and vice president biden and so many of the economists who told us four years ago we are going to get out of this mess and we will have a very robust recovery. i just shows the clip and president obama said he would be a one-termer if things are not turned around. have we turned things around? it is dicey. if you look at what happened this week with the g.d.p. numbers that came out, very weak, 1.3 percent growth. that is a third of where we should be. we have $5 trillion in debt. the deficit has not been cut in half. instead, it has actually doubled. when president came in it was $500 billion and now it is $1 trillion. the theme of the re-election campaign could be promises made, promises broken. >> the argument is this recession is different than any we have seen before. in context, we will put up growth in the first 12 quarters after world war ii, talking about the reagan recovery in the mid-80's at 18.5 percent and obama's recovery is 6.7 percent. what do you make of the president's argument this recession is unlike anything we have seen before? ing it is a hard ar
. but still won the state due to tally from early voting. this year, president obama could receive the same edge from early voting. and the iowa secretary of state's office says that democrats have a 5 to 1 advantage over republicans in the number of absentee ballots requested. now, though the state's republican party promises to close that advantage by election day, the candidates seem to have embraced early voting. both camps approximate put out ads that look and feel like closing arguments. here's president obama's. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's and decide for yourself. >> and with a very different pitch, governor mitt romney. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> okay, se
one year ago. obama is trying to ignite the economy, and the republicans are trying to -- well. [laughter] this is an illustration. it is several panels -- about what the problem really is. we complained about democrats and republicans running for the presidency. it is really the guys in congress that are the problem. this is "kicking the debt can down the road." i have to give a -- i have to get up because i cannot read it from here. this is when it was still in the primary season. [laughter] sarah palin. i have that fire in my belly. i know the feeling. the best thing you can do with a politician is to use his own words against him. this was soon after the president's state of the union address. we have come too far to turn back now. this is donald trump and the mitt romney over there. "you guys hold him down, and i will cut his hair off." obama is pointing at mitt romney. america, i smell something fishy. there we go. this is the president painting the economy over there which has wilted. we have it flip-flops here. government health care and same- sex marriage. mitt romney
barack obama and hill we clinton, and a moment came where-- while not the best friend in the world. and fade, they're working together -- >> for four years and working together as well. >> rose: we have an excellent relationship with president obama, excellent relationship with president clinton. pomititionititions are sometimer the rude, and there have been times in the france when there was a good-- and there have been times where we have been like that. but when chosen as our candidate, we had a concern, a blind conversation. and he "me, dwowpt to work with me. and well, yes, are you our candidate and i will help you and he appointed me as minister of foreign affairs and we are looking like that. >> rose: would you have rather gone minister of finance? >> no, no. possibly 7 the only position i could take. >> rose: where goes europe, the euro zone, the european union, the ideal of idea, the political idea of peerp because awe also attracted a lot of attention because of your own battles having to do with membership in hir. >> not exactly, but six years ago, seven years ago, becau
people's minds is what's obama or romney going to do to make the next four years -- >> i'm not entirely sure. i think, charles blow, tell me what you think, i think this continual pounding now, if all obama does is pound away on 47% and romney as this kind of ruthless business figure wrecking jobs at bain, however true that may or may not be, and we haven't even seen the detail of the company report, we can't work it out but these are now becoming a big problem for mitt romney. >> it's a huge problem precisely because it's in his own words. if this was just an attack by the obama campaign and obama was standing in front of the camera saying this is what i think about what he did at bain, it's a very different thing. but using words like harvesting. what does that make the people who lost their jobs, the chaff? wh does that make them? this is the worst kind of abusive language that you can possibly imagine. >> the problem for him is it plays to, kristen, i will come back to you on this, it plays to this sense there's always been about mitt romney that he's too rich, too detached. with th
is drafting executive order to establish cyber security standards for private companies, president obama has not yet reviewed it similar legislation failed to pass the senate earlier this year. as the hack attacks have spread. remember, sources tell the fox business network that hackers recently targeted the web sites for several major banks including chase, bank of america, meantime, listen to secretary napolitano's response when a reporter asked her about her personal cyber security. >> don't laugh, but i just don't use email at all. >> really? >> yeah, yeah. >> because it's too time consuming or for security purposes? >> um, for a whole host of reasons. so i don't have any of my own accounts. [ laughter ] >> she is the one. the secretary says it's her own personal choice. the apple's ceo tim cook today, wow. an apology for the company's new mobile maps. apple's new software no longer comes with standard google map application that is so awesome. instead, apple inserted its own which does not include street view photos or directions for mass transit. and the 3-d feature creates some strang
be a substantial deficit but it will be much smaller. president obama's main contribution to this $16 billion debt which is -- a $1 trillion debt which is a ten-year figure, projecting out ten years, was the stimulus bill which was $800 billion, which i believe was a good thing to do. i think that that might even be even bigger without it, because it kept people working and paying taxes and off the government payrolls and because it created new jobs and infrastructure in energy. if you look at his annual spending budgets, they are about 2% increases. that's less than the rate of inflation. so i think that the reason that i believe he will win re-election is that we're beginning to recover. we've had a higher rate of job creation since the recession bottomed out, the collapse bottomed out in the middle of 2009, than in the previous eight years, and we are moving in the right direction, and the policies he has advocated are more likely to present a good economic result. that's why if people thought this was just like another recession, he would be in real trouble but it isn't like another recession.
politifact looked at earlier this years -- something nancy pelosi put out -- that obama had increased the that the lease of any president and last six or seven presidents. it was all over facebook and exploded among democrats. i ended up giving that four pinocchio's and that became a viral thing from the other side. also looked at graphic elements that either campaign has put on there website. assertions of fact there that were wanting in both cases -- >> we try to do a lot of those things on facebook because the same way that chain e-mail's became a medium for transmittal of false information, the facebook posts that we called jpeg propaganda, especially during the occupy movement, became a way to spread propaganda. much of it inaccurate. it is tough. what we have to go through every day, this gets to the challenge -- any given day, there are probably 50 or 60 or 100 things we could check. we have for fact checkers. we have to be selective and lately, we focused almost entirely on the presidential campaign messages. but there are interesting senate races we have been unable to fact c
obama care in e process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried toind a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm oud wt wid actt he kw he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through 'simpoible straddle and . one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embre because ofhepled primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstans. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is what conservatives haeeplngut pecially over the past month mainly off camera. he
? they think he is going to get four more years of president obama? >> he sent a slight signal but an important one to the president that there will not be an attack before the election and a signal to governor romney that there won't be an attack before inauguration day on january 20th next year but it is not a huge shift. if you take spring as beginning at the vernal equinoxes that is not much beyond what it was talking about before. cheryl: do you think they're serious about a strike against iran? we have heard these threats years. the rhetoric has stepped up a little bit especially with the red line that egypt drew. these think it is possible? >> twice before in its history israel has struck adversaries with nuclear-weapons the precedent is there. israel would prefer to have the united states do it because our capabilities and greater but they recognize under obama up until the election or if he wins a second term it won't happen and that is why -- cheryl: can we expect any policy shifts between now and the election? the middle east has become a ticking time bomb for all of the countries in
